Hi! Adorable little Noel checking in! I am a 3-year old, 11-pound female Maltese/Poodle mix and boy was I glad to be rescued! I came into rescue with a giant bladder stone that was very painful and made it difficult for me to urinate. That surgery is behind me now and I am doing great! We will know soon once the lab results come back if I need to stay on a special prescription dog food from the vet to prevent stones from forming in the future. Since I am so small, it would not be a big expense if it does turn out that I need the special food.
I am doing well with my housetraining and do enjoy the fenced yard in my foster home. I am learning to walk on a leash but will need some patience with that as it is a new thing for me. I get along ok with the other dogs in my foster home but I do have just a bit of a bossy streak with them around my food and chews. I do correct my behavior pretty easily and for the most part get along great with my foster siblings. I would also do well as an only dog as I really love my person! And did I mention that belly rubs are just the best? I can be a bit shy when first meeting someone and need just a few minutes to warm up, so an adult-only home or one with children over 12 years old would be best for me.
So if you think I might be the cuddle bug for you, please contact my friends at SBRET. I have been spayed, microchipped, and am up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm/flea prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
